Had a wonderful time doing this hike. Will recommended to start early to avoid sun and high temperatures. Since no many shade areas. Bring sun protection and plenty of water if you planned to hike late. Excellent views once you reach the top.

Super short, super scenic. After that fun switchbacking gravel mountain road - it was great to be able to make the last stretch up on foot. 360 degree views, you can't go wrong with this beauty. Follow my instagram for more adventures @julie_journeys

Pleasant trail. Pretty rocky and narrow. Be aware you do have to cross a steam on the way in from Carr Canyon.

We hike up the 0.4 mile and were rewarded with an amazing 360 view. The road up is curvy, gravel and in most places wide enough for one car. If you are intimidated by the driving tight curving mountain roads let someone else drive. We drove our full sized crew cab truck up/down and really had no problems. The road is narrow, but well maintained. The hike up is easy, peasy. It is a narrow, well defined trail with steps in places. It is a constant incline (going up) with information boards about every 0.1 mile. Fantastic views from the top!!!

We really enjoyed this trail. Great views. Lots of switchbacks on the climb made the uphill grade nice and steady. We combined Joe’s Canyon Trail with the Yaqui Ridge Trail (to see the International Boundary Marker) and the Coronado Peak Trail (to get great views from the summit). It was a good workout!

Once again, great views and a lot of bang for you buck. It’s a short but steep hike with a great road up the pass as well.

Love this trail! Spectacular views. Easy with some slightly rolling hills. Started in Carr Canyon, then linked up to Lower Miller up to Clark Springs. Took me back to Carr. Great loop!

This trail is not in the National Memorial!

Check website. There is a shuttle seasonal.

Distance aside this is definitely a moderate hike, it's basically a mile of stairs. If you are an experienced hiker it's nothing, it stairs, but if you are a tourist arriving on a shuttle it is going to be a tough trip up. But the drive up is beautiful and the view from the top is fantastic. There are info signs and benches along the way to rest. You are above the border and can see into Mexico to the south and the mountains of the park to the north. A must if you are visiting the park.

Excellent hike when you've got only a few hours! From the trailhead, you climb about 1000' over the first mile-ish. It then levels out for a half-mile or so as you pass below a fantastic lichen-covered prominence, high overhead and to the left, enough time to catch your breath before the final 500' ascent and half-mile. 360-degree views from the summit are breathtaking, seeing well into the alluring mountains of Mexico to the south. Trail is a little overgrown, but always able to follow without trouble. Driving to the trailhead, the final 5 miles are on a dirt road, but nothing a Corvette couldn't handle (i. e., no 4wd necessary).

Quick hike to Coronado Peak. Well defined trail but it’s not really an easy hike up for beginners. Great view of the border and into Mexico. Drive up to trailhead is also kind of difficult if you have a car.

Great Hike. We used this to get ready for Mount Wrightson. Well marked, and maintained. Lots of parking. There is no potable water up top, and only one small pool about half way up. The water at the Visitors Center was great.

mostly up hill but it's worth it when you get to the top best view in my opinion

Awesome views and nice parking and facilities. Could be marked a bit better in a few places

Excellent trail for a short hike. The elevation gain is low and comes in chunks - only 807' overall. The views are great and although the highway is visible for much of the hike, the road noise isn't loud enough to be annoying. I highly recommend this trail as a one-way hike for beginners or anyone that's limited on time and can leave a vehicle at one trailhead and start from the other, or get someone to pick them up at the end.

great 360 degree views of endless rolling hills once at the top. Not too shaded, so sun protection comes in handy. the trail itself is easy to follow all the way through. Taking binoculars with you is also a good idea.

Love this trail! We (hubby, bestie, and me) hiked this top to bottom and back a few times as training for the Grand Canyon. Yesterday was our first time going from bottom to top and the , and the hubby wanted to hike back down on the road instead of the trail. It was ok. It's shorter and a little faster than going down the trail would be, but not fun. Next time we'll head back down the trail. This was also the first time we had added the section to the peak onto the end, and that made it even better.

Majestic views but a lot of small loose rocks and I almost skidded and fell several times even with good hiking boots and poles.

Great trail, we started at Carr and hiked to Miller. Scenic hike with views of Sierra Vista and Hereford. The trail has decent climbs and spots with shade. I recommend hiking in the morning or late evening so that you can see more wildlife.

It was tough but the view from the top was worth it. Bring lots of water. There is no shade at all.
